Carl Sagan’s Ghost "At The End Of It All"

Carl Sagan’s Ghost is a project of american composer Daniel Davis. The focus is on the ambient side of electronic music and the latest output, titled “At The End Of It All” is certainly no exception. Carefully designed and constructed, sonic landscapes you can drown yourself in completely. For a moment, listening to multiple layers of sounds echoing in spacious environments, discovering new subtle nuances on the sounds can easily transport you to a place, where you can completely forget the surrounding world momentarily. Just put on the headphones, find a comfortable position and switch off the lights. Also recommended, the previous album “Darkness and the Light” on the Earth Mantra netlabel. Some thoughts from the artist behind the sounds:

“Initially, this album was supposed to be an atmospheric celebration of spring and summer, something warm, something happy. However, that didn’t quite pan out. As I began to compose and then finalize these compositions, I noticed that the album was taking on a darker tone. What I ended up with was an album that seemed to contemplate death, although I don’t think the album is overly depressing. It is somber, but there is still a hint of hope and happiness in a number of songs.”
